Statistic of the Week

Among the 50 states and D.C., Nebraska ranks 50th regarding the percentage of households that have “retirement income”, meaning ‘retirement, survivor, or disability benefits from companies/unions, federal/state/local government, and the military’ (pensions). The 13.5 percent of Nebraska households receiving such income was only trailed by 11.8 percent in North Dakota. (Source: 2006-10 ACS)
